“Improve your Garden Soil Organically--Grow Better Roses - Part 2.”

Just think ---no more snow! Look around at your garden beds -- when was the last time you amended your soil? Have you considered going Organic?

Come to our March meeting and meet Monica Pape, Agronomist with Fertrell Company.

Fertrell specializes in biological plant food, formulated to provide “time-released” nutrients throughout the entire growing season. Fertrell plant foods are a unique combination of products which feed both plants and soil microorganisms. Fertrell carries an outstanding selection of these soil amendments.

Roses LOVE Organics!!

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD A TETANUS BOOSTER?

A Tetanus Booster should be scheduled preferably every 5 years or at the most every 10 years.
While working in the soil you can contract a bacteria and the symptoms can be quite painful.
So, schedule yourself for a booster and be safe
!
